Ages 22+

Coaches:  Dean Medford, Sherry Farmer-Jennings

Winter Season:  December-February

 

The Individual Skills and Team Skills program is designed for athletes who are not yet ready for game play. Individual Skills players practice dribbling, target pass and spot shot and may have 1 on 1 assistance. In Team Skills, players take their position and pass the ball to each person in turn and the last person shoots. Then they rotate and repeat the play from their new positions.

The two Skills Teams will be rostered by who is willing to travel overnight and who is not. If you do not wish to travel overnight for competitions, please let us know at registration.  Athletes wishing to travel to Regionals and State will be rostered together to ensure a large enough travel team.
